Back into modeling with Blender. No Traveller stuff for the time being, but I'm still elbow deep into Sci-Fi. The image below was created in Blender 3, utilizing the very nice 42 Isis Mining Complex by SolCommand. I added a simple set of asteroid shapes scattered randomly around a generated planet, modified and textured the station and threw a few of my other models into the scene. The small ship in the foreground is a RiftRoamers RPG - Type SMH Wolf Class bounty hunter vessel (actually a modified Type S Greyhound Class Courier ship), modeled by me approaching said station. There are other ships in the scene, of which only the Type FXH Macbeth Class mega-freighter on the far right is really visible, with its more than 3.5 km long hull and 8 huge space station supply tank-silos loaded, it is nicely noticable even from afar.

It seems this could be related to aging. I still feel the urge to ferociously argue against such helpful suggestions, but there is a side line to that. It could be true... Pushing that thought aside for a while. I plan to steer my three dimensional ventures into a more productive o

Hi there I feel the need to apologise for not being present on DA very much lately. RL took it's toll in multiple facettes that strained my schedule, health and creativity in many ways. I don't want to elaborate that to the max, but it may suffice to state that the passing away of two close family members kept me from doing a lot of things I usually enjoy very much. I'm not yet up to going full steam ahead and it might even take much longer still. I even missed a super interesting opportunity for a Traveller related job offer by not realising that an email account I had abandoned about a year ago was still listed on http://travellerrpg.com.

Thank you for the fave 😍

Thank you for the fave 😍

Thank you for the watch!

Outstanding! Great designs, beautifully rendered!
Sorry for the delay. No excuse. I like great art. I also like air- & spacecraft, real and imaginary. I blame Men Into Space, Fireball XL5, X-15 landings and Gemini launches.
Thanks again for the fave! :-)
